Error connecting to UD Community hosted on IIS from remote machine


I am trying to access my UD Community from a remote machine. I am using IIS to host the website from a Windows Server 2016. When I try to access the page locally on the server using localhost it works just fine. However, when I enter the server IP and try to connect to the IIS website remotely the page only half loads (as in only the background theme color loads) before I get this error:

I used this article to help with my setup: How to Install and use UniversalDashboard.Community with IIS

I am using:

  • ASP.NET Core Runtime (Hosting Bundle) 2.1.17
  • .NET Framework 4.8
  • UniversalDashboard.Community 2.8.1
  • WebSocket Protocol for IIS

I have copied all the necessary files from the PS module to wwwroot and the dashboard.ps1 looks something like this:

$theme = Get-UDTheme -Name ‘Azure’
$dashboard = New-UDDashboard -Title “Test Server” -Theme $theme -Content {

New-UDInput -Title "Server name:" -Endpoint {

    New-UDInputAction -Toast "Server entered: $ServerName"


Start-UDDashboard -wait -Dashboard $dashboard

If any additional information is needed, please let me know as I am truly stumped on this one.


Problem solved. Switched to PowerShell Universal and upgraded ASP.NET Core Runtime (Hosting Bundle) to 3.1. Followed this documentation:
